Here’s what happened in January 2015:
- The month has had more downtime than is normal. The government decides when each region will have its two-week winter break so that the whole country is not out filling the ski slopes at one time. Our region’s designated break this year is the last two weeks of January.
- We spent our free time with local friends, and the English teachers flew to Ireland, Anita’s home, for a long weekend. Cheap Ryanair tickets makes this possible, and we are grateful! One of the many refreshing parts of the trip was that we could talk with whomever we wanted to without a language barrier.
- The team also had time to host guests. Lolita and Heather’s parents came for a two-week visit, and Dervin had two friends come for a week.
- Jonathan enjoyed a three-week intensive language course in Warsaw. Three hours a day gives lots of opportunity to improve and gain confidence.
